Protect personnel Working at Height and remain compliant with regulations by utilising Heightsafe’s specialist aftercare team and unique digital asset management software, Prime.
Has your business recently invested in a Work at Height, Roof Access or Façade Access System? To remain compliant with Work at Height regulations, it is important to ensure that these systems are inspected, tested and tagged based on the manufacturer’s requirements.
Access Ladder Compliance Testing
Access Ladders used for Work at Height require compliance testing once every 12 months or more frequently depending on use.

Guardrail and Handrail systems used as a collective measure of protection for personnel Working at Height should be inspected at least once every 12 months.
Eye Bolt and Abseil Point Compliance Testing
Testing on Eye bolts and Abseil Points used for the purpose of Work at Height should be completed once every 12 months and once every 6 months if Class A.
Façade Access Compliance Testing
Façade Access Systems used for Work at Height require compliance testing once every 6 months, dependent on frequency of use due to the load capacity they can support.
BMU Service and Maintenance

Lightning Protection and Surge Compliance
Ensure that your Lightning Protection and Surge Protection systems are compliant with regulations and in full working order to protect your people and assets from a strike.
Light and Chandelier Fixings Compliance Testing
Light and Chandelier Fixings should be tested for compliance every 12 months, on any occasion where the item being anchored is altered, and any time the anchorage system is moved.
Temporary Fall Protection Compliance Testing
It is recommended to have Temporary Fall Protection systems tested for compliance every 12 months and be visually inspected prior to use on every occasion.
Non-destructive Compliance Testing
Locate surface and subsurface defects as part of your quality assurance strategy throughout the asset’s lifecycle – from production to decommissioning.
Personal Fall Protection Compliance Testing
Safety Line, Cable or Track systems used for Work at Height require compliance testing at least once every 12 months.
PPE Compliance Testing
Personal Protective Equipment should be visually inspected once every 6 months, and fully tested for compliance every 12 months by a competent specialist.
Roofing Walkway Compliance Testing
It is recommended to have all Roofing Walkways tested for compliance once every 12 months to protect personnel from slip, trip and fall hazards.
Wind Turbine Compliance Testing
It is recommended to have Wind Turbines tested for compliance every 12 months for smaller turbines, and more frequently for larger turbines.
In general, most systems require inspection and testing every 6 to 12 months, dependent on the frequency of use. If your system is not visibly tagged as compliant, it should not be used until a competent specialist completes a test and inspection. A non-compliant system may not only invalidate insurance but can also put lives at risk and render you liable in the case of an incident.
Heightsafe’s unique digital asset management software, Prime, has been designed by an dedicated in-house software specialist to provide clients with the ability to fully manage and view their own portfolio and projects – using just one platform.
This software makes managing important data, site reports, images and certificates a convenient process, offering unequalled functionality that ensures all sites are compliant with the latest Health and Safety legislation.
Neglect when systems have not been appropriately maintained
Poor fitting from installation
Inappropriate equipment for the intended use

A system that has been deployed
Should your system fail compliance testing, or not be inspected by the specified due date, it must legally be taken out of service and clearly tagged ‘not to be used’ until certified as compliant for use, or decommissioned.
